At Nanette Lepore Wednesday, makeup had “a sexy, bohemian-chic look from the early Seventies,” said James Kaliardos, who was working on behalf of MAC Cosmetics.

Meanwhile, Kevin Ryan and Frank Rizzieri of Rsession Tools did a “messy, low side bun,” which had a ponytail look to it. The element was draped down behind the left ear.

“Princess Leia: Bad. Ballerina: Bad. It’s someplace in the middle,” Ryan said as he bounded away to another model.

Kaliardos did a “strong but neutral eye” with metallic brown and champagne hues. He first applied the brown all around the eye, then topped that with the champagne, blending the shades for a “soft, diffused, Jaclyn Smith-before-Kmart” effect.

Girls with darker skin tones got a combination of copper and black around the eyes.

A “strong magenta lip” had a “melted lipstick texture,” Kaliardos said, “like a gloss that covers lipstick.”

Cheeks got a thin layer of foundation, were contoured, highlighted and blushed.

The inspiration for the hair came when the girls walked into the fitting, explained Rizzieri. “They had a really cool look,” he said. “We cleaned it up and dressed it up — refined it. There was no part, so we gave them a center part.”

Ryan and Rizzieri used Aveda Volumizing Tonic “to prep the base” of the hair and the brand’s Air Control hair spray to rid the style of flyaways.
